The trial of deposed Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi was postponed to January 8 on Monday, the presiding judge said.

Mursi, ousted in July by the military following mass protests against his rule, is being tried over charges of inciting violence.

The first session of Mursi's trial was adjourned twice on Monday because of repeated interruptions by him where he maintained that he is the legitimate president of Egypt.

"Down with the Military rule," the Islamist president chanted during the trial.
